As you know, sequestration went into effect last week. A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll showed most Americans, 61 percent, support the overall federal cuts, and 34% oppose the cuts. A good point was made by several business and industry CEO's, who said: if you are hurt by a 2% cut in expenses, you have a poorly run business. I think most of us can agree that our government is not being run properly, as many would say…like a professional business. It is sad to hear some say, that these cuts were good, because it was the only way we could reduce the government's run-away spending. I hope no one agrees with the negative impact this will have on jobs, our military, and our kid's education. In the coming months, if the sequester is not averted - we'll see whether the public moves heavily toward the "it's bad" or "it's good" side of the debate. We are Americans before we are Republicans or Democrats. Politicians are wasting our time playing this blame game. We frankly don't care who started it, or how your vote affects your re-election plans.
